Functional safety is one of the most crucial elements for the overall system or product safety that depends on the accurate execution of specific commands and functions. With more products & systems incorporating complex microelectronics and software, it becomes empirical to assess and execute safety-related functions. With the Internet of Things (IoT) driving the interconnection of systems and products in sectors such as in smart grids, connected vehicles & autonomous driving, eHealth to name a few. Functional safety provides a great degree of freedom from the risk of physical injury or damage to the health of people directly or indirectly resulting from property damage or environmental damage.
According to a report published by Market Research Future on Global Functional Safety Market Research Report- Forecast 2023, the domain is expected to grow at $ 8.7 Billion by 2023, at a rate of 8.64% of CAGR between 2017 and 2023. Implementation of functional safety systems have to be ensured through defined processes and certified sub systems to achieve specific levels of safety performance as it has become an indispensable element of the market place. The drivers for this sector are the increasing use and development of technologies that reduce risk, increased investment in the sector, eagerness of buyers to implement functional safety in their products and working environments.
The sector’s growth however could be restrained due to less number of players in the market, lack of awareness of the benefits and less than sufficient levels of research and development in the sector.
